Pink Sunset Is a Beautiful Way to End the Day

The other night, after supper and dishes, I had to make a run to the mall.

As I turned into the mall parking lot, the entire sky lit up like a gargantuan artist's canvas in pink. 

It was so incredibly beautiful that I pulled my car over to the side and dug deep into my purse to get, what else?  My camera.

As a security car circled the lot, I rolled down my window and snapped a couple of photos for my blog peeps.  

Nothing is too nervy for me to do for them.

After I took the photos, I quietly drove my car into a parking space near Macy's, still in awe over the intensely magnificent sky.

 (And also hoping the security guy wouldn't think I was some kind of nut.)

When I was a little kid, I learned this poem:

                "Red sky at night, sailors' delight.
                 Red sky in morning, sailors take warning."

Just wow! What a magnificent sky! And, yes, I've heard the little poem about red skies. Don't know if it's true, but a sailor told me once that it was, so ...

Beautiful sky Susan,

Amazing photos! You know, you have to catch a sunset or sunrise at JUST the right time, or it's gone in a few minutes. I have heard those lines all my life, and it seems to work out that way here in E TN. Hopefully, it will mean a lovely Thursday for you! :-)

These photos need no words, they are gorgeous, majestic, and thank you for shooting the sky.

Beautiful sunset! What a fun little story-I grew up hearing this same little poem! So neat!

I know those lines - my daughter does - and my grandson does - my mom used to say them every time she saw something like that!

Only God could paint a picture like that!

What a gorgeous sunset! Yes, that poem has been part of me for years and years. It has always proven to be true, too.

Wow that was spectacular...very good photo..great job Susan.

We've had rather muggy, cloudy skies of late -- even a thunderstorm during the night which is unusual for May. But today it is clear and hot! So I would imagine there should be a nice sunset. I'll have to go look for it since all the buildings going up are blocking my view now. :( Best wishes, Tammy
